Kamala Harris Says Her Gun Control Plan May Sound "Harsh"

Sen. Kamala Harris

The senator from California is speaking at a rally in her hometown of Oakland, the formal kickoff of her campaign for the nomination.

Complicating the launch, billionaire former Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz said hours after her announcement that he is seriously considering entering the race - as an independent. And at a town hall event last night, Sen.

"Who among us has not had that situation?" she continued.

Playwright and composer Robert John Ford noted that many Democrats "agree that the primary objective for 2020 is to nominate the candidate that has the best shot at defeating Donald Trump".

"I walked into the courtroom for the very first time and said the five words that would guide my life's work, "Kamala Harris, for the people", she said, speaking of her early days as a public prosecutor 30 years ago.

The California senator announced on Martin Luther King Jr.

Harris, whose father is from Jamaica and whose mother is Indian, said that "in the face of powerful forces trying to sow hate and division among us, the truth is that as Americans, we have so much more in common than what separates us". "Of the people. For all the people".

Harris on Sunday officially launched her bid for the presidency in 2020, kicking off her campaign with a speech in Oakland, Calif., that drew thousands of supporters.

Harris joins early Democratic contenders including former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Maryland's John Delaney, Hawaii's Tulsi Gabbard and NY senator Kirsten Gillibrand. We know it ended a little short for him. And enthusiasm behind efforts to curb gun violence found an example in Lucy McBath, who lost her 17-year-old son in a shooting in 2012. The junior senator has supported Medicare-for-all, legalization of recreational marijuana, sanctuary cities, passing a DREAM Act, and lowering taxes for the working and middle classes while raising taxes on corporations and the wealthiest top 1 percent of Americans, according to Wikipedia.

One reason for the racial scrutiny Harris was receiving was because of her past record as the district attorney in San Francisco. Bernie Sanders is one of them.

During her Iowa visit, some of Warren's stops took her to conservative parts of the state, as she sought to prove her comfort outside urban America and show stamina for what promises to be a long slog.

If elected, Harris would be the United States' first female president. "Senator Gillibrand from NY is another one". She will not vote for a wall on the southern border "under any circumstances;" wants a new national paid paternal leave entitlement; and has endorsed the "Green New Deal" popularized by socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. - a set of policies that would reduce the American economy to agrarian subsistence by ending the free market system.
